If you place a sign on your front lawn, (Public area where everyone can see what's going on) and you don't want people looking at your sign. You'd have to either a.) place a opaque shield over the sign so nobody but you knows it's there b.) somehow indicate that you don't want the sign to be seen.

Making a public avaliable website is like placing a sign on your front lawn, everyone can see it, and some people take pictures of it. If you don't want people to see/take pictures of it, you'd have to tell them that. And that's where robots.txt comes in.

Your copywrite notice is only comprehenable to a human, a machine can't read your copywrite notice. Therefore, you need to enforce copywrite (your onus) by using effective communication for spiders visiting your site.

Seems simple enough to me. Make a text file, issue resolved, next topic.
